This work is an objective review of Hahnemann's theory of chronic disease aimed both at the serious student and the professional homoeopath.

George examines Hahnemann's own writings and provides a concise review for the sake of forming a clear understanding of this often misrepresented subject.

Hahnemann's general psora model is shown to extend from his observations of the fixed epidemic and the venereal diseases, and then compared with the modern-day infectious model of disease with which it is found largely identical.

George further highlights both the difficulties as well as the significant impact of this model on the everyday clinical situation.

In his usual style, George provides the reader with a detailed and thoroughly referenced work which may be used as a basis for further reflection and study. This book will be found a valuable addition to the homoeopathic library.

A must for practitioner, teacher, and student alike
